Saturday 7th September

Rotherham United maintained their unbeaten record in Sky Bet League 1 and increased Sheffield United's woes with a 3-1 victory in the South Yorkshire derby at the New York Stadium.

Things looked promising for the visitors when Jose Baxter gave them the lead eight minutes before half-time.

However Kieron Agard emphatically levelled six minutes into the second period, then Daniel Nardiello netted from the spot along with a Robert Milsom goal in the space of three minutes was enough to move Rotherham up to fourth and leave the Blades with just one win from their first six games.

Peterborough United missed out on the chance to join Leyton Orient at the top as they were held to a 2-2 draw at Crewe Alexandra.

It could have been worse for Darren Ferguson's side, as goals inside the first 21 minutes from Vadaine Oliver and Ajay Leitch-Smith had Crewe two goals up.

The hosts were made to pay at the end of each period, with Tyrone Barnett replying at the end of the first half and Michael Bostwick heading an injury-time equaliser.

Bradford City moved above Brentford following an emphatic 4-0 win over the Bees at Valley Parade.

The visitors' cause was not helped when goalkeeper David Button was dismissed in the 26th minute and James Hanson made them pay when he got the opening goal four minutes before half-time.

Three goals in the space of nine second-half minutes from Nahki Wells, Garry Thompson anda second from Hanson finished off the visitors as the Bantams moved up to fifth.

Crawley Town came from behind to sink Gillingham 3-2 and climb to sixth.

Danny Kedwell opened the scoring for the visitors from the penalty spot in the 47th minute to give the visitors the lead.

It was 10-a-side when the Red Devils' Gary Lee and Gillingham's Charlie Lee were dismissed, then Kyle McFadzean (55) and Billy Clarke (66) turned things around.

Although Leon Legge levelled for the Gills in the 69th minute, Clarke's second of the game 12 minutes later won it for the hosts.

Alex Pritchard's superb free-kick was not enough to secure Swindon Town victory, as their match at Milton Keynes Dons finished 1-1.

The Tottenham Hotspur loanee's first league goal was one to remember from 25 yards out but Patrick Bamford equalised after racing clear shortly after the visitors' Nathan Byrne was sent off for a stamp on Shaun Williams' foot.

Elsewhere, Tom Pope's last-minute goal gave Port Vale victory at winless Carlisle United, while Tranmere Rovers and Stevenage ended goalless.

Sunday 8th September

Two goals from Callum Wilson saw Coventry City ease past Colchester United 2-0 to move into positive points and climb off the bottom of Sky Bet League 1.

It has taken the Sky Blues six matches to wipe out their 10-point deduction for going into administration and they leapfrogged Notts County, also on one point, by virtue of a better goal difference.

Leon Clarke twice hit the woodwork in the first half as well as drawing two fantastic saves from U's goalkeeper Sam Walker.

It looked like the hosts might regret their inability to convert when Alex Gibley volleyed over 10 minutes before half-time.

But Wilson opened the scoring two minutes later, tapping in a close-range rebound following Blair Adams' long-range shot to settle any nerves.

The division's top scorer doubled Coventry's lead in the 57th minute when he rounded the goalkeeper to slot into the empty net after a neat exchange of passes with Clarke.
